Great introduction to Canadian art. Also includes a 60-second visit to the Infinity Mirrored Room by Yayoi Kusama (very cool). Small selection of Impressionist art. Worth a visit while in town (set aside 1.5-2 hours).

Not sure about actual rental lockers. There is a coat check service which will take larger items like a back-pack or shopping bags.

Always order in advance if you know the window of time you wish to visit the exhibit. It is a timed entry for the special exhibitions. 0 seconds ago

It depends on what interests you and if you take one of the guided tours. I would say the minimum would be 2 hours, yet it would be very easy to spend 3+ hours there.
